Economic Update (11 Jan 2021)

Gary Sambrook: The Chancellor will know that the furlough scheme and the self-employed scheme have helped to protect many millions of jobs across the UK and many livelihoods across the Birmingham, Northfield constituency, but as he said, unfortunately not every job is going to be able to be protected during the pandemic, so can he outline the measures he is taking across Government to help to support those...

Justice: Topical Questions (8 Dec 2020)

Gary Sambrook: Will the Secretary of State outline to the House what steps he has taken so far to ensure that the Independent Monitoring Authority for the Citizens’ Rights Agreements will be ready for the end of the transition period, so that it can effectively monitor the rights of European Union and European economic area citizens?

United Kingdom Internal Market Bill: After Clause 1 - Common frameworks process (7 Dec 2020)

Gary Sambrook: I rise tonight to support the Government in their approach to handling the United Kingdom Internal Market Bill, which is incredibly important for this United Kingdom. I shall also speak in favour of disagreeing with the Lords amendments. There are a couple of reasons behind that for me. The first is the issue of high standards. In this place, we constantly hear lots of myths about what we...

Public Health (1 Dec 2020)

Gary Sambrook: Your famous hindsight.

Spending Review 2020 and OBR Forecast (25 Nov 2020)

Gary Sambrook: Fifteen years after the MG Rover collapse, there is still 150 acres of unused land in Longbridge that could be used to provide much-needed jobs locally. Will the Chancellor support my campaign, along with Mayor Andy Street, to make sure that Longbridge is at the top of the list when it comes to levelling-up and that we have those jobs right across Northfield?

Covid-19: Winter Plan (23 Nov 2020)

Gary Sambrook: In Birmingham, the data suggests that the biggest driver for transmission is household mixing. With that in mind, will the Prime Minister give serious consideration to allowing places such as Buzz Bingo and Hollywood Bowl in Great Park, in the Northfield constituency, to open in all three tiers—not just to save jobs and those businesses, but so that family and friends can socialise in a...

Health and Social Care: Topical Questions (17 Nov 2020)

Gary Sambrook: I welcome the news that the Secretary of State has secured 5 million doses of the Moderna vaccine, totalling 355 million dosages for the UK. Does he agree that it is key to putting this virus back in its box, and that it is down to the willingness of the great British public to step forward and to voluntarily have this vaccine so that we can all move on?

Home Department: Topical Questions (9 Nov 2020)

Gary Sambrook: For many vulnerable people and victims of domestic abuse, it will not be an easy few weeks in November during the lockdown. Will my right hon. Friend update the House on what measures her Department has been taking to safeguard the most vulnerable people from abuse?

Additional Covid-19 Restrictions: Fair Economic Support (21 Oct 2020)

Gary Sambrook: Unfortunately, during today’s debate and over the last couple of weeks, we have seen Opposition Members trying to have it both ways. This is a moment of national crisis, yet we have seen no attempt at being constructive and no positive ideas at all. This Government have delivered a package of £200 billion for this country, which must be seen in an international context, when we look at...

Additional Covid-19 Restrictions: Fair Economic Support (21 Oct 2020)

Gary Sambrook: On the point about votes in Parliament, many of us called for votes in this place on national restrictions a couple of weeks ago but, unfortunately, near enough all Opposition Members did not bother to turn up for those votes, including the one on the rule of six. If the Opposition get their way and have votes on localised restrictions, will they even turn up?

Immigration and Social Security Co-ordination (EU Withdrawal) Bill: After Clause 1 - Impact of section 1 on the social care sector (19 Oct 2020)

Gary Sambrook: I have been pleased to support this Bill throughout its passage, particularly for its two primary aims of ending free movement of labour and introducing a points-based system. I wish to focus mostly on Lords amendment 1 and social care. As has been discussed, the amendment would require the Government to publish a report on the impact of ending free movement of labour on the social care...

Agriculture Bill: Clause 4 - Multi-annual financial assistance plans (12 Oct 2020)

Gary Sambrook: I feel like a bit of an interloper in this debate, because many Members have talked about their heritage in farming and agriculture, and the constituencies they represent have vast amounts of farms and fields, but I am a city boy and represent a city seat. I have no farms in my constituency. I have two fields and no sheep. I have two horses, which sit at the side of the beautiful Kings...

Agriculture Bill: Clause 4 - Multi-annual financial assistance plans (12 Oct 2020)

Gary Sambrook: I thank my hon. Friend for that intervention. In fact, my family name comes from Shropshire, so I have a little bit of agricultural heritage. The reason I am speaking in this debate is that many people across the whole country, in cities and in rural areas, care deeply about standards in food and especially deeply about standards in animal welfare. It makes us proud to be British that we have...

Areas with Additional Public Health Restrictions: Economic Support (6 Oct 2020)

Gary Sambrook: There is no doubt that a number of businesses in Birmingham, Northfield and across Birmingham, especially in hospitality, would not exist now if it was not for the support packages put in place by the Government over the past several months. Will my right hon. Friend please commit to looking at as many ways as possible of supporting businesses, especially those affected by the local...

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Planning System: Design and Beauty (5 Oct 2020)

Gary Sambrook: What steps he is taking to ensure that design and beauty are prioritised in the planning system.

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Planning System: Design and Beauty (5 Oct 2020)

Gary Sambrook: Under the White Paper, Bournville, an area that I am lucky enough to part-represent, was used as an example of an area of beauty. George Cadbury in 1893 had his vision of building houses for the area. Today, there are 25,000 people across 8,000 homes in Bournville. Will the Minister please accept an invite from the Bournville Village Trust to come and see the area for himself and the...

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Topical Questions (5 Oct 2020)

Gary Sambrook: The Government are absolutely right in their commitment to building more homes, but we also need to look after the ones that we have. I am especially thinking of those predominately council estates that were built in the ‘50s, ‘60s and ‘70s, with many homes falling into a state of disrepair. Will the Secretary of State commit to looking at ways in which we can regenerate those estates...

United Kingdom Internal Market Bill: Schedule 2 - Services Exclusions (29 Sep 2020)

Gary Sambrook: On a point of order, Madam Deputy Speaker. Is it in order for the right hon. Member for Ross, Skye and Lochaber (Ian Blackford) to filibuster so much in order to prevent other people from being able to input into this debate? Surely it is not fair on so many people who want to contribute.

United Kingdom Internal Market Bill: New Clause 4 - Objectives and general functions (29 Sep 2020)

Gary Sambrook: This is one of the most important Bills that we will vote on in this Parliament, because it will create the foundation and fabric for our United Kingdom to prosper for many years to come—hopefully for at least another 300 years, to pick a random number. It is so important for all four of our nations to benefit from the Bill and prosper together. The provisions in the Bill, especially on...

United Kingdom Internal Market Bill: New Clause 4 - Objectives and general functions (29 Sep 2020)

Gary Sambrook: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?
